    I was shocked to hear that Tony Stewart, was the ONLY NASCAR driver to take time, and go spend two hours at Halifax Hospital with the injured fans on Sunday.

    I have a new respect for him! :clap

    There's also video of the crash from the stands.

    Looks like Danica has a lot left to learn, she pretty much had no idea why the right front blew out. I'd bet that she couldn't help the crew with input during practice and they just threw Newman's setup on her car since they both did the same thing.

    Still a fan, maybe after a full time season she will have a better grasp.

    Why would she know? I'm a Danica fan but not a believer......Denny Hamlins crying because he got fined for saying he doesn't like the new cars is silly. Silly Nascar for fining him for bitching and silly him for whining. All the cars are still idenical so whats the beef? Just drive it and make your millions.

    Because a race car driver knows a tight car, Newman knew...he's just more aggressive and crashed it twice. Danica is clueless when it come to car setup from what I can tell. Put her on a single car team and she probably wouldn't qualify for a single race without somebody else's notes.

    Seems like complaining about her is the majority of your racing posts these days. She is well and truly inside your head! :lol3

    I'm actually a fan, I love that girl!! :raabia

    I'm just saying that she has a lot to learn and that she wouldn't even be able to qualify for a race if she didn't have all that Stewart/Hendrick experience behind her.

    Danica is a underdog and I love underdogs. It could be a black guy, or a red guy, or a brown guy, a women or even a old guy like Mark Martin, I root for them. .:nod

    You going to get us all in trouble talking like that........Danica is 35th and only 5 laps down. Most of the field is down laps because there has only been one flag. Time for a nap..
